Gates Foundation Announces Open Access Policy

When colleges and universities do research, the studies typically appear in journals. Most of these publications charge readers for access. But that’s starting to change. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which funds research nationwide, recently announced a new open access policy. Under the policy, all research the Foundation supports must be available to the public free of charge.
